    So again (5.00 / 1) (#16)
    by Ga6thDem on Fri Aug 28, 2015 at 07:51:16 PM EST
    Hillary sez

    "I know that there are some on the other side who are seriously advocating to deport 11-12 million people who are working here."

    She continued, saying it was "the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive law enforcement effort--including perhaps National Guard and others--to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up, put them, I don't know, in buses, boxcars, in order to take them across our border."

    "I just find that not only absurd, but appalling," Clinton said.

    And the GOP starts screaming once again. I guess we can expect to spend 14 months of listening to them have a meltdown every time she points out how nuts they are.

    I knew that Tim Beckham was under scrutiny for having allegedly mistreated injured players, but that mistreatment must have been very serious for the administration to take action one week out from the opening game:

    "During a preliminary briefing from the external reviewers, [UI athletic director Mike Thomas] said he learned of efforts to deter injury reporting and influence medical decisions that pressured players to avoid or postpone medical treatment and continue playing despite injuries. He also said in some instances student-athletes were treated inappropriately with respect to whether they could remain on scholarship during the spring semester of their senior year if they weren't on the team."

    It was also announced that offensive coordinator Bill Cubit will take over as the Illini's interim head coach.

    Either he'll have the Wolverines back on track and in Rose Bowl contention, or he will have worn out his welcome in Ann Arbor -- or quite possibly, both.

    i just heard on MSNBC that Palin was interviewing Trump on "her new show" tonight.  This is on MotherJones-

    Fed up with media bullies attacking Donald Trump's purported Bible fanaticism, Sarah Palin announced she will be interviewing the GOP front-runner and nonactive church member for what's sure to be a circus of a conversation. In a Facebook post today, the former vice presidential candidate and fired Fox News host explained her plans:

    WTH? Lamestream media asks GOP personal, spiritual "gotchas" that they'd NEVER ask Hillary, or they'd feed the question to her and/or liberal cohorts before they asked it on-air (we know how these things work, lapdog media... the public's on to you), so good on Trump for screwing with the reporter. By the way, even with my reading scripture everyday I wouldn't want to answer the guy's question either... it's none of his business; it IS personal; what the heck does it have to do with serving as commander-in-chief; and these reporters trying to trip up conservatives can go pound sand until they ask the same things of their favored liberal pals. I'll cover this in my interview with Donald Trump and other candidates tonight on the One America News Network show "On Point." The more the media does this, the more they empower America to reject them and their bias as voters run to the anti-status quo candidates daring to Go Rogue.

    the link at the bottom does not work

    So I googled "one American news" and found a website but it doesn't work either.  Have they somehow blocked lefties?
    I would totally watch Palin interview Trump.

    One America is the new Fox. Since conservatives believe either Fox has been lying to them (of course you and I know they have) or been scamming them, this One America is the "new thing" I have never watched the network.

    My computer says their page won't load. I guess too many people are trying to get on to see the Donald interviewed by Palin.

    those links appear to be overloaded.   But thanks.  If you are in NY or your provider carries it.  Mine does not.

    I'm watching him on MSNBC.  He's talking about Karear.

    North Karear and South Karear.
